REVIEW: Fujitsu P27T-6 IPS Part 4
Comparing our measurement results to the information given in the data sheet of the Fujitsu P27T-6 we find that there’s no real consistency. According to the specifications, the maximum power consumption is 110 watts. However, a total of 126,2 watts is what we meter in factory setting with maximum brightness. With USB activated there’s an extra of 1,3 watts. Fortunately, the USB connection doesn’t have any influence to the power consumption in sleep mode. According to Fujitsu, standby with power switch on consumes zero watts per DVI and VGA port, which doesn’t correspond with the 0.6 watts we measured. This flaw can be easily corrected with the use of an intelligent power switch. As with the P22W-5, the power switch can be turned on permanently, which doesn’t influence the operation of the monitor. However, shortly after it is switched to sleep mode, the Fujitsu P27T-6 doesn’t consume power anymore. As it were, the Eco button helps to save power at the touch of a button as the backlight is being turned down to 35 per cent.
The Fujitsu P27T-6 also provides a light sensor, which is deactivated factory-made, but can be enabled via OSD. If the light sensor is turned on, the monitor regulates the intensity of the backlight automatically and adapts it to the ambient light.

Offering a variety of interfaces, the Fujitsu P27T-6 is accordingly well equipped. Apart from the usual VGA and DVI connectors it provides one Display Port, a pair of HDMI ports and one audio input. Positioned at the left edge of the screen, two of four USB downstream ports are easily accessible. Of course the quartet is fed through an USB upstream connector. Further left, separated from the other interfaces, you will find cold device plug and power switch. Due to its high native resolution it’s indispensable to use a dual link DVI cable when connecting the Fujitsu P27T-6 to a computer via DVI. Oddly enough, the accessory just provides a single link DVI cable, which in our test setup was unable to elicit an image from the display. Using a dual link DVI cable quickly helped solving the problem.

Aligned centrical at the underpart of the display frame, there are seven elongated keys with the help of which the Fujitsu P27T-6 can be controlled. Beginning from left, the first button we find is the menu key that opens the OSD of the P27T-6. Followed by the input key, with which signal inputs can be chosen, the Eco key comes second. The mode key opens a window listing the predefined image modes. Labelled with the sun symbol as a usual pictogram for brightness, the fifth button allows direct access to the brightness adjustment. Coming next, the Auto key doesn’t have a functing while in digital operation without OSD turned on. Placed rightmost, the power button switches the display on and off. Pressure point and feedback of the keys are good, and even for less dinky hands the size of the buttons is dimensionend pleasantly.

The model’s Power LED is located above the power button and is of the same width. It shines blue while in operating mode and orange in sleep mode. If Eco mode is enabled, the colour of the Power LED changes to green. Given the power switch is turned on and the Fujitsu P27T-6 is in sleep mode, the Power LED goes out shortly after. There’s no explicit possibility to disable the Power LED via the OSD.
